"Fading Fast" is an on-going series which I first started documenting in the 1990's. This selection captures a certain Paris mood from January to early May 2019 in the run-up to the European elections. Compared with earlier series, there's a kind of pregnant silence. These walls don't "talk" so much, they hardly mention France's social and political divide. Could it be that poster stickers, billboard shredders and defacers prefer to express themselves on social networks? For information, I keep to a strict rule,  never shred posters or deface these walls, I just accept them as they are and frame them to my liking.
To be followed - à suivre !

Even if they don't really have ears, walls definitely talk a lot.
